If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Oldsmobile Alero radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. So, what happens when the radiator isn’t working quite like it should? You guessed it – your engine overheats, and it may even break down completely.
Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2001 Oldsmobile Alero is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. To keep your radiator functioning, Oldsmobile recommends replacing your antifreeze or coolant at scheduled intervals but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you notice a low coolant light or higher-than-normal engine temperatures on your dashboard, or if you spot coolant leaks coming from your car. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check at the first sign of one of these issues.
What happens during a radiator repair service? At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we start by performing a thorough inspection of your Oldsmobile Alero cooling system. Then, we’ll move on to a machine-powered coolant exchange. Finally, we’ll refill the flushed sealants, lubricants and chemicals, then do a pressure check to catch any possible leaks.
If your radiator is acting up, odds are good that your water pump needs to be checked for proper function, too. Of all the parts in your 2001 Oldsmobile Alero engine, the water pump is one that you'll want to have repaired or replaced as soon as you discover a problem with it. The role of the water pump is to keep coolant circulating in your engine, radiator, and hoses. If it isn’t functioning properly, your engine won’t be able to stay within its optimal temperature range. Let our technicians examine your radiator pumps and hoses to help make sure everything is in working order. If you’re about to lose your cool over a too-hot engine, rest assured that we’ll take excellent care of your 2001 Oldsmobile Alero at Firestone Complete Auto Care.
